God has sent us to this world with a purpose. Our job is to fulfill that purpose. Spiritual triangle is something which is actually the driving energy within us. As per Vedas Human Life is having four main purpose-Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. In Zodiac there are 12 house and all these houses are grouped into these. These are known as purusharthas. Every human being exists for these purusarthas. So we need to check them with reference to our existence i.e. Lagna

Read What is Lagna and its importance

Each group is having 3 houses and each house is 5 houses away from the next house. e.g. 5th house is 5 houses away from Lagna and 9th house is again 5 houses away from 5th. If we plot them over a natural zodiac we will get a triangle shape. So these are called spiritual triangle or trikona.

Different Spiritual triangle tells us different story.

Dharma Trikona: The 1st house i.e. the Lagna, 5th house and 9th house is known as dharma Trikona.

Artha Trikona: The 2nd house, 6th house and 10th house is called Artha Trikona

Kama Trikona: The 3rd, 7th and 12th house is called Kama trikona

Moksha Trikona: The 4th, 8th and 12th house is called Moksha Trikona.

I will try to give you all an idea about the functioning of Spiritual Triangle

Among the Spiritual Triangles, the first triangle is Dharma Trikona. Dharma does not mean Religion only. Dharma means Responsibility or duty which we should do. Like the dharma of a warier is to fight. How we execute a work or how we do our duty that is defined by this trikona.The rules or the principles we follow is governed by these house. The first house is the Lagna which is our entire existence, it says who we are. Depending upon who we are, our dharma will differ. For example, dharma of a king and dharma of a priest is not same. The 5th house is our ability. 9th house is the actual dharma or the principles that we need to follow. Based on our ability we will choose the principles or way of working.

Artha Trikona does not mean only that these house will give money. These house states that what we should do. The purpose of our duty is derived from these house. To execute any purpose we need resources which is governs by 2nd house. The obstacles or oppositions we need to overcome in this process are governed by the 6th house and 10th house is the work or action or what we finally achieve.

Kama trikona is the desire or the motivation of the work. The 3rd house is the initiative. For doing any work we must take the first step i.e. the initiative. It is the driving force behind us. 7th house the desire or what we want out of our work. Without expectation or desire we do not get the motivation to do something.11th house is the fulfillment of our desire. It is the house of gain.

Moksha trikona is most important for spiritual growth. Moksha means overcoming of gain or desire. In Moksha a soul becomes from the cycle of birth and rebirth. For attaining Moksha we need to do niskam karma or overcoming of desire. 8th house in this trikona is the house of occult knowledge or tapasya or sadhana Which is necessary to achieve moksha. It is the effort to achieve the Moksha. 12th house is giving away everything. It is the opposite of 11th house in nature.

So overall we can say that Dharma and Moksha trikona shows the spiritual growth of a person whereas the artha and kama trikona shows the materialistic growth and improvement. The no of planets in the spiritual triangles, will be the diciding factor. More no of planet means more energy in that particular house. One important thing to notice the two houses of Artha trikona (6th and 10th) and two houses of Kama Trikona (3rd and 11th) is upachaya house. That’s is why it is said that if the upachaya houses are strong, native can have good materialistic gain.

Hi Friends. Lagna or Ascendant is well Known to all of us. This is the first thing we check in a Horoscope. It is the First house of the Natal chart. For the persons who is New to Astrology, Ascendant is the Sign Rising in the East during the birth.

The Zodiac is 360 degree and it travels the earth from East to West. So always a particular Sign is rising in the East Horizon. The portion of the sign which is above the Horizon is known as the Ascendant Degree. But beside this regular Lagna there are some Special Lagna also which are equally important.

Different Type of Lagna Need to check in a Horoscope
  • Chandra Lagna
  • Hora Lagna
  • Ghati Lagna
  • Arudha Lagna
  • Pakka Lagna

Importance of Regular Ascendant in Horoscope

Normal Ascendant or Lagna is the starting of the Horoscope. The sign which occupies this Lagna is the first House. This denotes our physical existence. It signifies our physical body like our height, complexion etc and it also signifies our head among all the body parts. It has a strong bearing on the name, fame overall fortune of the native even on the longevity too. The 9th house of a horoscope is Known as the house of Fortune. It will bring good Luck and fortune to the native but without the strength of Ascendant, the native will not be able to take the advantage of the fortune brought by the 9th lord. Potential of a Horoscope can be enhanced or suppressed with the strength of Lagna. It has the quality of both a Kendra house and a Trikona House both.

The Ascendant Lord is equally important. If the Lord is posited in any dusthana house, Like 6th, 8th or 12th the native may suffer due to health problem. A strong Ascendant Lord ensures that the person is able to overcome all the hurdles and obstacles coming in his way. Beneficial Aspect on it is also Welcome.

Now think of a situation when a Malefic becomes the Ascendant Lord and situated in the 6th house. Take the example of Aquarius, Saturn is posited in 6th house. As a Ascendant Lord, its situation in 6th house is bad but as a natural malefic position in 6th house is beneficial. So how should we treat it ? We should remember that situation of Ascendant Lord in 6th is a detriment to the overall chart and makes it weak. Even the benefit of saturn in 6th house can not compensate it. So it is undesirable.

Importance of Special Lagna in judging Horoscope

Now Lets discuss about other important Ascendants

Chandra Lagna: Chandra stays in a sign for two and a half day. So this is another important reference point to judge the Horoscope and its strength. The sign in which Moon is posited is called Chandra Lagna. Every Eminent astrologer has advised us to judge a horoscope from Ascendant as well as from Moon both. Even some has said to the extent that which ever is stronger should be taken as the reference point. Ascendant shows more of the physical qualities where as Moon Sign shows more of emotional qualities of a native. A strong mind is very important for getting success in life. If some one has strong will and mental determination, he can even overcome his physical inabilities. We have seen several example of it. Without a strong Moon no Dhana Yoga or Raj Yoga becomes fully active. The Moon Sign Lord is also equally important. The Ascendant, Moon and Sun makes a tripod over which a Horoscope rests. The Ascendant is the Physical body, Moon is the mind or emotion and Sun is the Soul.

Hora Lagna: It is the position of Sun at the time of Sun Rise. It mover at the rate of one Rashi per hour.It is used for Judging the wealth of a Native. If we use any software for making the Horoscope like Jagannath Hora, it is mentioned as HL.

Ghati Lagna: Ghati means 1/60 of a day which is approx 24 minute. If we use a software it will show as GL. It moves faster than HL. It generally used to check power or authority of a native. If any planet aspect both Ascendant, Hora and Ghati Lagna, a very strong Raj Yoga occurs in a chart. Even if Two of the Special Lagnas gets beneficial aspect, is very favorable. We should check the strength of the chart taking these special Lagnas as reference point also.

Arudha Lagna: This concept is given by Sage Jaimini. Arudha means Image. Ascendant is the Actual or the real native where as Arudha Lagna is the image of that person. It clearly deals with how other people in the society perceives us. If we use any software it is mentioned as AL. For example a person reading in a prestigious institute is deemed perceived a very intelligent student but which may or may not be true. It may happen that the person has got admission by donation but we will never come to know this. This is the effect of AL. This is actually very useful in determining the status and materialistic possession of a person. If AL is strong in Horoscope or Lord of AL is strong, it will protect the image of that person.

Pakka Lagna: It is very important while judging Dasha and transit with Natal chart. In this case Ascendant Lord is taken as the reference. Tauraus Ascendant has Venus in Virgo. So Virgo will become the Pakka Lagna. The ascendant Lord shows the physical self of a person. So this is important to judge the planets taking it as the reference point.

Lagna is the single most important significant entity to look into a chart. It represents the very existence of a person.It  not only shows the physical ability or personality of a person but overall potential of a chart. It shows the possibility of getting desired result in this life. It becomes very strong if its Lord is Pushkar Navamsha.

Read What is Pushkar Navamsha

A Strong Ascendant makes the work of a native much easier. He can overcome the obstacles very easily. There is a Yoga called Jaya Yoga which occurs when Lagna Lord becomes very strong and exalted and 6th  lord becomes debilitated. In this yoga the person will become successful all through his life and in all of his endeavors.

I hope i have been able to give a very brief idea about different kind of Ascendants and their usage. We will try to discuss about them in details later on. Please signup to comment. Your feedback is welcome.


Hi Friends, We often feel confused when we see a Retrograde planet in a chart. Very few texts have discussed about it in details. I am trying to give you all some amount of idea about it. In my earlier post i have discussed about What is retrogression and What is general effect of Retrograde Planet. Retrograde planet, which is often known as Vakri planet, generally bring some amount of unfulfilled desire from the past life. We need to learn the karmic Lessons attached with that planet in this life. If the Atmakarka Planet is retrograde then we have to understand that the unfulfilled desire is very intense and from several past life.

Retrogression or Vakri is most probably the most confusing aspect in astrology. In this part we will explore some concept about it and meanings with regards to our past lives. Retrograde Planet is very helpful in discovering our past life information.  We have some unfulfilled work related to the significations of the Retrograde planet of our chart which we need to fulfill in this birth and in course we need to learn some karmic lesson out of it.

Effect of  Retrograde planet and Karmic Lessons

In our Birth chart Retrograde planet is marked as (R). So check your chart and which ever planet is having this symbol is vakri or in retrogression. Now Lets explain each planet.

Mars Retrograde: What is Mars ? Mars is the Planet of War. It signifies anger, courage, aggression etc.  So when it is Vakri or Retrograde, it denotes that perhaps in your last birth you were a soldier or military and you did something regretful under pressure of your superior. For that anguish and guilt feeling you were not being able to deal with your anger. Sometime you will not be able to understand from where this anger is coming but the outburst will be in an inappropriate way.

As you have misused the power or the energy in your past life, you need to learn to deal with it in this life. The energy of Mars is usually directed into either positive, direct, aggressive action in life, or into the areas of sexual gratification, temper, or violence. The location of the retrograde Mars, according to house position and sign, would differentiate what what qualities will be delivered. Often, house position and sign involvement tend to stress certain qualities of a planet more than others.Negative character traits of Mars could include an animalistic nature, an over-sensual character, a rash, impulsive, violent temper. Negative Mars, retrograde or direct, brings an offensive nature to the native of the chart, who would also be prone to accidents.

Mercury Retrograde: Mercury is the significator of Communication, Logic, grasping ability, intelligence etc. So when Mercury is retrograde in chart it shows that some sort of karmic lesson regarding communication needs to be understand in this life. It denotes that the persons thought, communication skill or thinking process was impractical and impulsive in past life. This created lots of confusion and chaotic situation.

The native will find that the manner in which he communicates to others is not proper and he has tendency taking impractical approach to life .This is actually being repeated from the past lifetime.So in this life, you need to learn communication skill and need to be logical in your thinking. With mercury retrograde person tries to become too perfect and hence may become frustrated.Very few can reach perfection. There can be also a tendency to judge others in comparison to himself which may bring disappointment also. They should believe in their intelligence and communication skill. They should try public speaking and group discussion as much as possible.

With retrograde mercury in chart it is also possible that, you were a writer in your past life. You may have some writing ability in this life also. It is very important for these persons to conduct himself for the right manner in the right direction.

Jupiter Retrograde:  Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, expansion, wealth etc. If the Jupiter is retrograde in chart. If the Jupiter is retrograde we can assume that in your past life you have not been able to achieve self development. You remained the same person throughout the entire life. So in this life you need to use your free will and need to be more active. for achieving success in life. You have to learn this lesson. You can not remain as a slave in the hand of fate anymore.

It is also possible that you might have been troubled for your religious or spiritual beliefs. So you are afraid of guiding some one in this life. You do not want to be blamed for any consequences. you have become skeptical. If Jupiter's retrograde is in your chart, you are likely to be the type of person who is always searching for ethics and values. You constantly seek truth and deeper meaning in life. Ritual becomes very important to you. You suffer from feeling the lack of spiritual fulfillment.You strive to find the right spiritual balance.

Retrograde Jupiter some time also mean that the native was probably a drunkard in his past life, a very biased and prejudiced person.This tendency come in this life too. This would be inner trait and the character which would drive the native.

Venus Retrograde: Venus is the planet of luxury, comfort, beauty, spirit of joy, romance etc. When Venus is retrograde in birth chart it denotes that in past life you may have misbehaved with your spouse. You were not loyal. You had not tried to understand the value of relationship. So in this life you have to focus in these areas. You are destined to learn lessons regarding Love and relationship. For this reason you may have to face some broken relation ship also. you should be very clear about what you want from your relationship and what you are giving back to your partner. you may choose unusual alliances. You will find it hard to express your love well.

 Saturn Retrograde:Retrograde Saturn in a chart represents the neglect of responsibilities in the past or previous life. The native comes into the current life, with a tendency to carry forward the same goals that he had left unfinished in the previous life. The responsibilities ignored or avoided in the past are the clear indicators with the quality of Sign in which the Saturn is posited in retrogression in the current life.Saturn in retrogression in the Sign Leo shows that the native avoided responsibility of leadership. Hi might have ignored duties towards some fatherly figure.Had it been Sign Cancer, the feeling and those related to mind would have been ignored by the native. It is also possible that he had ignored duties towards mother or motherly figure.

It can also indicate that you were immensely impatient in your last birth. In this life you need to understand the value of patience, responsibility and hard work. Saturn retrograde can make them either workaholic or they will not work at all. They will try to cross the boundaries and limitations. Their hunger for desire, materialistic prosperity is very difficult to appease.

Now Lets Understand what happens when Retrograde planet occupy Upachaya houses

3rd, 6th 10th and 11th is called the Upachaya house. These houses are growth making house. They are very helpful for materilistic gain They are part of Artha trikona and Kama Trikona. Malefic planets like Mars saturn does very well in these houses. But what happens when retrograde planet occupy them ? It is better to have a malefic retrograde planet rather than forward moving malefic. we need to understand that a malefic planet wherever they sit, they will do some harm to the native regarding that house. If saturn is posited in 3rd house, it will do some harm related to the younger sibling. But if the saturn is vakri, it will do much less harm to the sibling. Saturn as a retrograde planet does very well because saturn energy is to create delay and frustration but when it is vakri it creates much less delay. Retrograde saturn in 10th house is a blessing.

Effect of Retrograde planet in transit

When Mercury becomes Vakri in transit, We must be very careful regarding all sort communication whether verbal or written, We should avoid arguments and debates. We should be careful about mobile, computer etc.

What happens during the transit of retrograde Mars ? During the transit, when Mars become Retrograde, the overall atmosphere changes, people have lower physical energy, they get tired and feel stressed more easily and they need more time to relax and recover.The mood, the desires, the initiative, the ambition, they all seem to function on a lower level.

Now Lets discuss the effect of retrograde Venus in transit. When it becomes Vakri we understand the real worth or value of people and things in our life. During this time, feelings are not easily expressed. May face some issue in relationship. The general advise is to focus on older relationships, to try to make them work.We may meet old friends or someone we loved or cared for a long time ago, which might reactivate old feelings, possibly forgotten.

Among all the Retrograde planet, Saturns transit is most important. When saturn becomes vakri one should not expansion of business or starting new venture. We should be careful in regards to signing of agreement. Some people find themselves releived when saturn become retrograde and starts new ventures with full zeal but it becomes wilder ed when Saturn becomes direct as their plan do not materializes. We should remember that

  • Natal Planet should also be checked with retrograde planet.

Lot More to Talk about Retrograde Planet

There are so many things more to discuss about retrograde planet. But all will not accommodate in this single post. So in the next post we will discuss about effect of retrograde planet according to house lordship. We need to discuss the effect of each and every retrograde planet when posited in different houses.

I hope i have been able to give you all some information about Retrograde planet.I welcome your feedback regarding the post.If you Like my Post please sign up to receive the weekly newsletter and interact with me. Please give a like to my FB page here.


One May Smile, and smile, and be a villain. Long Ago Shakespeare said this in Hamlet. This was true 300 years ago and this is true today also. We should always be careful from the persons who have smile in their face but bitterness in their heart. They are so shrewd and cunning that we often misjudge them. These kinds of people generally have something in their mind but they will not express it. We often find them in our office, in friend circle even within our relatives too. Here in this situation astrology comes into play. With the help of astrology we can understand the mentality of a person. Now let’s try to understand how we can know the mentality of person with the help of astrology.

Ancient classic tells us about it in detail. If a bad planet joins the 4th house or the lord of the 4th house has evil aspect or if the 4th house is hemmed in between malefic, the person will feel one thing in heart and will do or speak another thing to deceive people or take undue advantage. When the lord of the 4th produces rottenness of heart by the aspect of an evil planet, he will certainly produce this in more intense form when an evil planet conjoins him.  Degree of rottenness will depend upon the evil nature of the planet and the sign. Suppose Makara happens to be the 4th house and two evil planet Shani and kuja are in kumbha and dhanu. Makara is an evil sign and Kuja falls in the 12th and shani occupies 2nd kumbha. If Meena happens to be the 4th house and shani and kuja are in kumbha and Mesh, but as Meena is an auspicious sign and Kuja in Mesh and Sani in kumbha in their mool trikona sign, so The first conjunction produces more rottenness of heart than the 2nd one.  If shani, kuja or rahu occupy the 4th without beneficial conjunction and if the 10th lord is also an evil planet and occupies 4th with evil aspects, the person will have an unclear heart. Suppose there is beneficial conjunction or aspect, then the evil will be minimised.  The exalted evil planets will not produce such bad hearts as the debilitated evil planets. Evil planets in their own house will decrease the evil where as they will increase it in enemy sign. Mandi is the son of shani and is considered more inauspicious than even shani. If the lord of 4th house is in conjunction with shani, rahu or mandi and other malefic aspect or join him, the person will have a bad heart. When you do not know the heart of a man he becomes a dangerous person and society suffers from his evil deeds. When the 4th house is combined with the 8th lord with another malefic, the person will be guilty of dissimulation. When the 4th house is occupied by sun and weak moon, the badness of heat will be for short time. This means that the man will be bad for a short time and after wards he will repent for his work. Planets and signs plays an important role here. If the 4th house happens to be the friendly sign or sign of exaltation for a benefic or if it happens to a beneficial sign, the person will be straight forward. For example, dhanu lagna. The 4th is Meena and it’s a beneficial sign and also the house of exaltation for Venus. Therefor has a tendency to make the native straight forward. If Mesha is lagna, the 4th house is Cancer. This is also the exaltation house of Jupiter and therefor good for making a pure heart.  But suppose the lord of 4th, the moon is weak or in debilitation, then there may be a tendency of badness of heart but as it happens to be the exaltation house of guru, it gives moral strength to heart.  It is a great blessing for a man to be honest and straight forward.  If the 4th lord, even if he is malefic planet, will give good result if he is well situated, exalted, joins good amsa and vargas. Getting, gopur or parvat or parijat amsa is good. Even when 4th house is combined by the lord of lagna or the Lagna lord conjoins or get the aspect of benefics or when he joins parvatamsa etc the heart of the person will be pure.


Hi Friends,

In My last post we discussed about what is retrogression and retrograde planet.Now we are going to discuss the effects of vakri graha or retrograde planets in Horoscope which is some time called as Natal chart. If some one do not know what is a Retrograde planet, Please read my earlier post what is retrograde planet

Most of astrologers are of the opinion that a planet produces at least subtle different effect when it is in retrograde motion. Practically retrograde planets seems to affect more in mental plane than the physical or worldly affairs. During the Dasa of a retrograde planet it will be difficuilt to differentiate the results or events but the native who is under the Dasha of a retrograde planet will react to the events differently in comparison to the person who is having dasa of same planet but in direct motion. In my small experience i have seen that though the result of Dasa may not be of much difference but the karakatwa or significations of a retrograde planet suffers a lot. The energy of a planet is allowed to flow normally and the house occupied by the retrograde planet does not function at its best.

When a Planet is retrograde it more close to the earth than usually it is. So its energies are more intense and because of that more effort is required to integrate the energies coming from the vakri planets. Some time it is reverse also. In-fact we use the shadbala technique to have an idea about the strength of a planet. Out of six sources of shadbala, one is chesta Bala. a retrograde planet gets maximum or full chesta Bala where as a direct planet do not get full chesta bala. So Vakri or retrograde status gives endurance, stamina and extra push of will power from the native which required for getting any work done. So if the planet is good by Lordship or Rajyoga or Neech bhanga etc it will give more beneficial result where as if it is fundamentally malefic it will tend to produce more bad result.

 Now Lets Discuss about the Result of each Planet when they are retrograde.

Mars: Mars is the planet of  Action, Fire. He is the warrior or commander. When Mars is retrograde the person will be reluctant to take action. He will wait for the last minute or wait for the situation to become more critical before he takes any action. He will not do it consciously always but he need fire under his belt for taking any action. A native with retrograde mars will move one step then he will stop and again he will gather courage. He restart and gives the final blow and win the conquest.

Mercury: When Mercury is retrograde thinking process is reverse. Direct Mercury likes sequential processing of information where as retrograde mercury will to process non-sequential intuitive processing. so it will affect the signification of Mercury like intelligence, communication skill etc. They will not seem to be very logical in their thinking. Their communication skill will not be very intellectual which direct mercury gives.

Jupiter: Jupiter is the significator of expansion. When Jupiter is retrograde, it is reverse. So it inspires a person to win back what is lost. So often person with a retrograde jupiter is useful to revive any failed project. But this can lead problem in relationship. Because these persons always looks for something better beyond what they are having in current partnership. A problem with jupiter retrograde people is that sometime they fail to respond to the new opportunities timely. Too much Lazyness or optimism may lead to miss obvious benefits.

Venus:When Venus is retrograde, it indicates unusual interest in Love or affairs. Often they are found to be either celibates or the reverse -sexual celebrants. They can swing between opposites. Socially they don't fit into the mainstream. Their expectation from Love is such a high that no body can meet it and so often they have the feeling of not being Loved. Venus retrograde people do not get a good married life often.

Saturn:Saturn is the planet of Limitation, discipline, stability etc. When saturn is retrograde it inspires a person to overcome the limitation or crossing the boundaries. Often people with saturn retrograde becomes more self isolating, monastic etc. They feel like they are alone, no one understand them. So some time they may feel inferiority complex also. Saturn forces repetition until karmic lessons are understood and vakri saturn enforces repetition.

Now Lets take few example. Amitabh Bachhan had retrograde saturn in 4th house. Saturn is the Lagna Lord. In the Dasa of saturn, he bace superstar. Indira Gandhi had Jupiter retrograde and in the Mahadasa of Jupiter her power increased immensely. 

                                            Pushkar Amsa and Its effect

Pushkar Amsa and Pushkarbhaga is special concept used in Navamsha. This concept is found in Jataka Parijat and also in Nadi books. Now Lets understand what is Pushkar Amsa and its importance and effects.

Push Means boast or nourish and Kar means significator. Pushkara is a special energy which nourishes a planet.

Navamsha is the most important chart after Rasi chart. It shows the actual strength of a Planet. If a planet is well placed in Rasi chart but weak in Navamsha ,it will not be able to deliver its good results fully.  There are some areas in every sign, where if planets are posited they get benefic  sign in Navamsha which strengthen the planets and its significations. These ares  are called Pushkar amsa .

In each Sign there are two such areas. So Total Pushkar amsa is 24. Any planet posited in these areas get its quality enhanced and acquire the potential to give good result.

Read: How to Know about Spouse from Navamsa Kundli

So Now Lets See what are the areas of Each Sign which comes under Pushkar Amsa.

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius -20 deg to 23 deg20’ (Libra Navamsha)  and 26 deg40’ to 30deg(Sagittarius Navamsha)

Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn- 6deg40’ to 10deg40’ (Pisces Navamsha)  and 13deg20’ to 16deg40’ (Taurus Navamsha)

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius-16deg40’ to 20deg (Pisces Navamsha) and 23deg20’ to 26deg40’ (Taurus Navamsha)

Cancer, Scorpio, Pices-0deg to 3deg20’ (Cancer Navamsha)  and 6deg40’ to 10deg(Virgo Navamsha)

When any planets occupy these areas of any sign they get Navamsha of either Jupiter/Moon/Venus or Mercury.  No Pushkar amsa falls in the sign of Sun, Mars or Saturn.

Out of these 24 pushkar amsa, in 3 amsa planets will be vargottam. Vargottam is different concept which we will discuss later. But as of now we can say that if a planet occupy the same sign in Rasi chart and Navamsha chart, it is called Vargottama.  So for example

If a planet is posited in Sagittarius sign in 270 then it will be in Sagittarius Navamsha also. So it will be in pushkar amsa as well as vargottama. So very powerful.  In this way any planet placed in Taurus Sign in between 13020’ to 16040’ and in cancer sign in between 00to 3020’ will be in pushkar amsa and also vargottama. Famous Actor Amitabh bachhan has Jupiter in cancer vargottama and also in Pushkar amsa.  Placement in the Pushkar amsa enhances the significations of a planet. Suppose Jupiter is in the Pushkar amsa. Jupiter is the significator of wealth. If Jupiter is well placed in Kendra or Kona in rashi chart it will give plenty of wealth. But if it is ill placed in 6th or 8th house, it will give wealth but the magnitude will be low and also with wealth it will give disease, obstacles, enemies etc.

Pushkara Bhagas are specific degrees where planets become auspicious to do good. The exact degree becomes very powerful agent for being positive, whereas the Navamsha is still powerful but not as intense as the degree.

The degrees are as below

21deg Aries (Libra Navamsha)

19deg Leo (Virgo Navamsha)

23deg Sagittarius (Libra Navamsha)

14deg Taurus (Taurus Navamsha and Vargottama)

9deg Virgo (Pisces Navamsha),

14deg Capricorn (Taurus Navamsha)

18deg Gemini (Pisces Navamsha)

24deg Libra (Taurus Navamsha)

19deg Aquarius (Pisces Navamsha)

8deg Cancer (Virgo Navamsha)

11deg Scorpio (Libra Navamsha),

9deg Pisces (Virgo Navamsha)


Lagna, Lagna lord, and 10th lords in Pushkara give great strength and good luck to the

birth chart. More planets in Pushkara, the stronger the chart.  Any planet / planets in Pushkar Navamsha or Pushkar Bhaga strengthen the chart. Lagna Lord will elevate the whole chart whereas the Karaka of a particular House will boost that House. If the Dasha lord is in Pushkara or the lord of it will give special results in relationship to its significations.  Yogakaraka and Yogas formed in Pushkara will give excellent results during their periods.  If a woman has Jupiter in Pushkara, then she will have good partner and children.
